How do I set up a workflow to run automatically when the back end data is updated.
Could you please clarify what back end data is? Is it a file or database?
For database, I would write an insert/update trigger to invoke alteryx workflow through command line.
This is for a database.I will try your suggestion and get back to you..
Do you have an example of how to write an insert/update trigger to invoke alteryx workflow through command line..I am new to alteryx
Assuming your database is SQL Server
CREATE TRIGGER Alteryx_Trigger ON TableName FOR UPDATE AS
DECLARE @AlteryxCmd nvarchar(200)
SELECT @AlteryxCmd= '"C:\Program files\Alteryx\bin\AlteryxEngineCmd.exe AlteryxApp.yxwz" '
EXEC master ..xp_cmdshell @command = @AlteryxCmd
